Dan Wriggins (of Friendship)- "Dent" & "The Diner" 14 Jan 2021
Dan Wriggins, frontperson of Philadelphia alt-country band Friendship, has released his first two solo singles, "Dent" & "The Diner." Recorded in October 2020 at Big Nice Studio in Lincoln, RI, both songs feature Dan Wriggins on classical guitar & vocals with accompaniment from Michael Cormier (drums, organ), Lina Tullgren (violin) & Pete Gill (guitar). Both songs carry the same commiserative humor & emotional heft that made Friendship’s 2019 album Dreamin’ a cult favorite.
This morning, Brooklyn Vegan premiered "Dent" & "The Diner" alongside a music video for “The Diner,” directed by Dan & his brother, Adam
Wriggins, & filmed in the brothers’ hometown of Yarmouth, Maine. Brooklyn Vegan's Andrew Sacher writes:
"Friendship's music is on the quiet, plainspoken side to begin with, but 'Dent' and 'The Diner' do feel even more stripped-back and minimal, and
the lyrics often sound like they're ripped straight out of a diary.
They're both folky songs that feel ragged and lived-in (similar vibe to
Neil Young, Will Oldham, etc), and they're both songs that can stop you
in your tracks and leave you hanging on every word."
